Great hotel, beautiful rooms, we were well looked after by all the staff. Great breakfast selection. Beach less than ten min walk away from hotel. However they also have a mini bus if you don't want to walk. hotel up a bit of a hill, but takes all of 5 mins to walk up. Would definitely stay again.

The Avista Hotel and Spa Kata Beach is an amazing property located in the relaxing area of Kata, Phuket. The location is perfect, a five minute walk to a beautiful beach and plenty of restaurants and shops around. The hotel itself is absolutely pristine. Rooms are spacious and the balcony is a lovely space to chill out in the evening.... More

Avista was excellent value, in a hotel which was highly professional, yet friendly, with all the services you needed, yet not too big to be impersonal. Avista is a sparkling medium sized jewel of a hotel, which sits on a hill and catches the cooler breezes, and yet is still a convenient 7 minute walk from the entertainment/dining strip in... More
